From the moment you set eyes upon its centuries-old facade, Yarner House in Bovey Tracey is jaw-droppingly impressive, having started life as a Tudor hunting lodge in 1660. Secluded and serene at the foot of Haytor Rocks on Dartmoor, it is the perfect hidden gem for an unforgettable wedding celebration.
With chic interiors, a contemporary Scandinavian vibe and accommodation for 13, the recent five-star renovation embraces a design-led Swedish style. Choose to wed outside in the African hut, made traditionally from elephant grass and offering couples the chance to exchange vows surrounded by lush Devonshire countryside before up to 120 guests, or in The Scandinavian Hall in the Victorian wing. A light-filled option that boasts a delightful blue and gold Swedish-style interior and Canadian maple floors, it holds up to 80 guests, with awe-inspiring floor-to-ceiling windows offer views over the Wray Valley.
As one of Devon's first established wedding venues, you'll be blissfully certain you're in safe hands, with a wedding team who've not only organised hundreds of weddings over two decades, but who can recommend and organise local suppliers for marquees, catering and accommodation, with a strong ethos on staying local to Dartmoor and Devon.
All that's left for you to do once you've taken your vows is to enjoy your surroundings in the company of your most cherished friends and family. Take your loved one's hand and have a stroll to the sweet pea gardens, perhaps stopping for photographs by the ornate bamboo plantations or the cascading waterfall, before returning to a magical reception.
